Hi,

I've just put up my Martin Logan ESL speakers for sale at Rs. 1.5 lacs in another thread:

https://www.hifivision.com/threads/...ostatic-speakers-less-than-2-years-old.72319/

If anybody is willing to buy the entire bundle consisting of Cary pre, Cary power and the ESL speakers, I'll do a very sweet price of Rs. 3.5 lacs (non-negotiable) for the bundle. Let me know if there is interest. Shipping would ideally done by private dedicated transport, at shared cost

Cheers!

PRICE DROP ON CARY SA 200.2 POWER AMP:

I've been checking the prices of this amp on various international used equipment sites. In line with the international prices, I am adjusting the prices as shown below:

New price: Rs. 1,50,000 ( in line with international used price of USD 2,000)

Here's what Kent Johnson of Positive Feedback has to say about this exceptionally talented amp:

The Cary 200.2 unveiled a soundstage with more realistic openness and space than I have previously heard. I believe that reproducing sound of this quality requires a system to have superb timing with equally good low level detail retrieval. The Cary made this seem easy. The Cary 200.2 has tremendous bass power with an attendant level of bass definition. The human voice is reproduced with marvelous fidelity via the 200.2, whether it is a solo from Patricia Barber, or the chorus of the Polovtsian Dances. It would have been easy to listen to female vocals and nothing else during the time I have had the 200.2. The Cary amp reproduced cymbals with more shimmer and life than I have heard via CD at any time previously. Woodwinds were gorgeous. String tone was lovely and entirely recording dependent.
It is just right. The Cary Audio Design 200.2 amplifier never is too much, or too little of anything. The loudest crescendo isn't exaggerated; the softest caress of a piano key isn't diminished. Feed it an exceptional recording and you get stunning realism in return; feed it a lesser recording and you still can appreciate its musical strengths. I think I have found the amplifier that I have been looking for. - Kent Johnson

Would like to add that if anyone is interested in the complete package of pre, power and speakers, reasonable offers are welcome. I would rather see a fellow audio enthusiast savour this high end products than have them set up in my house as a second system.

Cheers!

Hi,

There have been a few inequities from FM's in other cities. They have been keen about the gear but reluctant to come and audition the equipment in Pune. My insistence on audition is only because i believe that, for someone spending a substantial amount on purchase, it is important to make sure that the condition and sound signature are as per one's expectations and fancy. I would definitely advise against a blind buy of used equipment.

If any FM is really keen to purchase, we can definitely look at an arrangement to reimburse the travel costs out of the sale proceeds, should the deal materialize.

Cheers!

Hi,
The preamp is reserved for an FM.
The SA 200.2 Power amp and ML ESLspeakers are still available.
Cheers!

I no longer wish to sell the Cary power amp and the Martin Logan speakers. Moderators, please close the thread.
Thanks to all who looked in.
